I just joined this group earlier this summer and have an addition for your Formosa 46 list.
Hull number FBB00827 was finished in October of 1978 and initially owned by Biaird Bardarson of Seattle, Washington and was christened SV Bright Star. Her US Federal Registration # is 594357 (and this number was in-molded into inner-hull skin at FBB). Biaird sailed her extensively with his family between Seattle and Alaska each summer season from 1979 and 2007.
In August of 2009 with Biaird's passing, Bright Star was given to Biard's daughter Lisa Bradarson and son-in law Jon Reichlin of Narberth, PA and she was trucked from Seattle, WA to Annapolis, MD. Jon and Lisa extensively restored her from 2009 through 2017 as she resided and sailed out of Annapolis. In early July of 2018, Jon passed Bright Star along to my wife and I and we had her trucked to Charlotte, Vermont, (near our home) where she resides and sails today on Lake Champlain. Our hope to continue Jon and Lisa's extensive and comprehensive restoration of Bright Star over the next few years and return her to ocean sailing in warmer waters by May of 2023.
Hope this information helps you to complete one more small step in your journey of accounting for these amazing vessels.
SV Bright Star
